The Fatah Coalition, an influential bloc in the Iraqi Parliament, has called recent airstrikes on the country, allegedly conducted by Israel, a “declaration of war” by the Jewish state and stated that it holds the US fully responsible for Tel Aviv’s actions. In light of this, the coalition has called for the withdrawal of the about 5,000 remaining American soldiers from Iraq.

The parliamentary bloc also said in the statement that the country reserves the right to respond to Israel over the air raid purportedly conducted by it.

Iraqi military spokesman Yehya Rasool said in a separate statement that the country is probing the latest airstrike, which took place on 25 August near the border with Syria.

“An investigation is ongoing now to determine what happened with the strike”, he said.

The statement comes the day after a drone airstrike on the Iraqi town of Qaim reportedly killed an Iraqi Shia militia commander. The attack was only the latest in a series of similar air raids, allegedly conducted by the Israeli Air Force (IAF).

Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) has not explicitly confirmed the strikes, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vaguely hinted on 23 August that it was possibly an operation by the country’s forces against alleged Iran proxies.

“We’re acting not only if required, we’re acting in very many theatres against a state that seeks to annihilate us. Obviously I’ve given the security forces the order and the operational freedom to do what is necessary in order to disrupt these plots by Iran”, the prime minister said.

The last time the IDF officially claimed responsibility for conducting strikes in Iraq was 1981, when the IAF destroyed the Osirak nuclear power plant near Baghdad.

In a separate report by The New York Times, unnamed senior US officials were quoted as confirming that Israel was behind the recent airstrikes in Iraq as it targeted alleged Iranian weapons transfers to Syria – something that Tehran has repeatedly denied doing. The officials also said that Tel Aviv pushed “the limits” with its recent actions threatening the continued US military presence in Iraq.

Israel has repeatedly accused Iran of supplying weapons to militants seeking to attack the Jewish state and acknowledged carrying out several airstrikes against such deliveries and militant forces in Syria. Tehran has vehemently denied the Israeli claims and lambasted Tel Aviv for conducting air raids against sovereign nations.

Although he made foolish mistakes, Saddam was more ballsy in comparison.

Menahem Begin did a terrible mistake : he should have helped Saddam instead of Khomeini.

l***o, just because Saddam was and Iraqi Sunni doesn’t mean he was subservient like the Saudis and their likes (including FSA/HTS/ISIS). Nice try Boet.

True and let’s hope IRGC has targeted all significant arsenals of the nuclear-armed nitwits so they can be vaped on first strike.

Hihi, in nuclear jargon, do you know what a 2nd strike capability is?
Oh, BTW…

The New York Times crowned Eisenkot as “the man who humbled” Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force.
The best way to describe Soleimani is… Imagine a mix of Rommel, Lady Gaga and a James Bond on the cheap, you’ve got it.

I hope you’ll get some Shekels for this pathetic k*ke propaganda, dear Sayani. Israhell is a cancer of the world and its servants are Devil’s slaves.

No, this is too diverting for asking money! When it comes to this, I get remarkable dividends from Israeli companies like Rafael or Elbit, and they pay in €. Everytime IDF [Israel’s Pest Control Service] drops a bomb or shoots a missile on your terrorists, I earn money, and redistribute a much bigger % of benefits than Raytheon or Lockheed-Martin. Now Rafael is even the #1 missile seller in Asia! Soon you’ll get yours too! Stephen Hawking has PROVEN that no god created this universe. If there is no gog, god can’t have created a fallen angel named Jibril who… Read more »

+++ “Man I can’t wait to see ballistic missiles coming from everywhere” => It will look like Bastille Day when ABM will intercept these… Do you know what was the target of the recent Arrow-3 test in Alaska? A Titan-II ICBM… If you intercept a Titan-II, you intercept a Topol-M. And Arrow-3 is as cheap as a Patriot PAC-3… Guess why everybody congratulated at such a point after the successful test… Now you can pack hundreds of ABM able to intercept ICBMs or MIRVs even outside your territory since Arrow-3 ranges 2,400km. It also recognises decoys. You’re really outdated. Amjad… Read more »
